guidance

The title to this post might sound a bit strange, so let me explain. I’ll speak of this person in general terms non gender specific to protect their identity.

I was once talking to someone years ago that went through some serious life issues when they were younger. They told me their personal life was turned upside down and they spent a lot of time trying to repair the mess that they created. One day we were talking and the conversation came around to that little voice that directs us all. You know the voice. It’s the one that tells you right from wrong or which direction you should go when you are confronted with that proverbial fork in the road. It has many names; God, universe, conscience, your spirit, the list can go on and on. Essentially it is the core of your being guiding you through life.

Well this friend, said that the little voice didn’t speak to them anymore. I sort of laughed it off, but I was curious what they really meant. This person had ignored that little voice for so long that it didn’t talk. It seems somewhat laughable, but it gives you something to think about. Can you ignore your conscience for so long that it stops guiding you?

The good part of the story is that when I asked this person that same question a few months ago, they said the voice was speaking again and this person was making sure to listen. Now I’m not speaking of this like GOD is speaking to you in some loud booming voice. This voice, as I call it, can primarily be a feeling that comes to your mind and heart when you need to make a choice.

Personally I have found that if I listen, it never guides me the wrong way. It has saved me lots of trouble in the past and I depend on it to protect me in the future. I believe if you take the time to listen, it will protect you in your life as well. Go for it. Trust it and it may just surprise you.

Remember…You don’t have permission to Quit.
